2016 SPRING SEASON TRIBAL FISHERY ANNOUNCEMENT
Friday, June 3, 2016
Due to the need to ensure that the Spring Season harvest rates do not exceed the agreed to limit, and to maintain the tribal priority of keeping the Zone 6 Platform and Hook and Line fishery open for subsistence use, the four Columbia River Tribes have decided to make the following regulation change:
Zone 6 Platform and Hook and Line Fishery
The sale of fish caught in the Zone 6 Platform and Hook and line fishery is prohibited after 6:00 PM on Monday June 6th. Salmon, steelhead, shad, yellow perch, bass, catfish, and carp may continue to be kept for subsistence use. Sturgeon from 38 to 54 inches fork length in the Bonneville Pool and sturgeon from 43 to 54 inches fork length may also be kept for subsistence.
The tribes will allow the sale of fish (except sturgeon) caught after 6:00 AM Thursday June 16 at the start of the summer fishery management period.
For current information regarding tributary fishing regulations, please contact tribal fishery departments directly.
